Rolls-Royce awarded Mexican CHP contract

Global power systems firm, Rolls-Royce (LSE:à‚ RR.) has been awarded a contract to supply a conglomerate with on-site power equipment at its processing plants in Veracruz, Mexico.

Marcelo Garza of Mexican textile and chemicals conglomerate CYDSA said: “The proven efficiency and high power output of the Rolls-Royce Trent 60 industrial gas turbine will enable us to meet the increased power requirements of our processing plants. In addition, the ability of Rolls-Royce to deliver the equipment in a very tight timescale is critical to helping us meet our growth objectives.”

Under the terms of the contract, awarded by engineering contracting companies OHL and Sener, the Trent 60 unit will be installed for duty in a combined heat and power configuration to provide process steam and electricity for CYDSA’s processing plants, with excess electrical power sold to Mexico’s national grid.

Incorporating an AC generator and associated control systems, the Trent 60 will feature WLE (wet low emissions) technology, utilising water injection during combustion to reduce emissions and boost performance, and inlet spray intercooling to reduce energy requirements during compression, resulting in higher power and efficiency levels.
